Speed, snow, and a deer are being blamed for an accident with an injury in Westmoreland.

34-Year old Whitesboro resident Glenn Larish, II was brought to St. Luke's Hospital after hitting a deer on West South Street at around 11:00 last night.

Larish was driving eastbound when a deer crossed in front of him. He successfully avoided the deer but lost control of his car. He hit a tree off the side of the road.

Oneida County Sheriffs say he was complaining of leg pain but appeared to have no major injuries.

He did receive a traffic ticket for speed not reasonable for the conditions.
